    I also am interested in what this script does....I see it in the startup folder ...I imagine that it creates a background render button somewhere in the interface because some of the functions refere to putting a comp in the render que. I just can't find it....

     

    to answer your question though you do not need to know java to use the background renderer. You just type it into the command line. If you aren't familiar with that in windows then it goes something like this

     

    hit the start menu button in the system tray at the bottom of the screen

     

    in the "search programs and files (formerly came up as run) at the bottom type in cmd and hit enter

     

    the command prompt will come up

     

    this is the command line. this is where you set off a background render.

     

    like this

     

    aerender -project C:\!WORK\218-SK2\218-012-018\AE\218-012-018-00_d00.042-cu00.000-c00.0 03.aep -v ERRORS_AND_PROGRESS

     

    If I want to render my file I set up the render que and save. then enter this into the command prompt.

     

    unfortunately the above wont work right off..you have to be in the directory that aerender.exe exists in. This is refered to as the environment variable.

     

    to do this in the command prompt type this

     

    cd C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe After Effects CS4\Support Files

     

    You may have to alter this if your main local drive is not c: or if you are on a 32 bit machine in which case you can omit the (x86) form the line. like this

     

    cd C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe After Effects CS4\Support Files

     

    also pay attention to what version of AE you are using

     

    so in summary to set off the file you have saved with the render que set up you would type this into the command prompt

     

    cd C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe After Effects CS4\Support Files

     

    aerender -project C:\!WORK\218-SK2\218-012-018\AE\218-012-018-00_d00.042-cu00.000-c00.0 03.aep -v ERRORS_AND_PROGRESS

     

    then hit enter

     

    there is plenty of documentation on this around the interenet if you want to get more elaborate with this.

     

    cheers,
